Safety Trailer Makes Pit Stops Promoting Home Fire Sprinklers
Made possible by a $5,000 grant from the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) Fire Sprinkler Initiative, a safety trailer hit the road in 2015 to promote the life-saving benefits of home fire sprinklers. For more information on this vehicle, visit NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative blog. For more information on reserving the trailer for an educational event, contact Dean Hunt.
Utah's Home Fire Problem
Fires in the home pose one of the biggest threats to Utah residents. For instance:
- Utah fire departments responded to an estimated 920 home structure fires in 2012
- These fires caused $12.2 million in direct damage

Home Fire Sprinklers in the News
Two house fires, days apart, result in starkly different outcomes thanks to sprinklers. A fire in Stansbury Park, initiated by an unattended candle, was deemed a complete loss, whereas tenants were able to reoccupy their home following a house fire and sprinkler activation in Layton.
